Sound Visionaries

Christina Petrowska Quilico solo piano


Claude Debussy

Olivier Messiaen

Pierre Boulez


Claude Debussy, Olivier Messiaen, and Pierre Boulez are stunningly reconciled in Christina Petrowska Quilico's Navona Records release SOUND VISIONARIES. Boasting a track record of over 50 recorded albums and having recently been named to the Order of Canada, the veteran pianist proves that despite all difficulties, finding common ground between these three composers can be done spectacularly.


The works in question are cleverly chosen: Debussy's ethereal Preludes, Book Two is contrasted with Messiaen's quasi-spiritual Vingt Regards Sur L'Enfant Jésus, and the album rounds off with Boulez's atmospheric Première Sonate and Troisième Sonate. Petrowska Quilico unearths the modernity in the impressionist, the impressionism in the mystic, and the mysticism in the modernist. Sagacious, riveting, and indeed – visionary.
